Yesterday, there was hat-like hair at Christian Dior, and today there were giant wildflower bouquets atop the models’ heads at Junya Watanabe. Apparently headgear is big for spring. [Junya Watanabe fashion show; Paris Fashion Week; 9/30/2008] Keep reading »
It’s no secret that women can be incredibly competitive and catty with each other. In yesterday’s post about Mean Girls we argued that no one can bring a woman down faster and harder than another woman. Right now, a lot of us are reconnecting with our own inner Mean Girls when it comes to Sarah Palin. We mock her out, attack her, and put her down in ways only we women really can. But of course, it’s not just Sarah Palin we’ve got beef with, is it? When it comes to other women competing for the same men, the same jobs, even the same last pair of chocolate brown leather riding boots in size 7 on sale for 50% off, we are out for blood. After the jump, 12 things Mean Girls do to take down the competition… Keep reading »
For starters, you might not actually know much of anything about the model-turned-actor (turned musician!) who was once a Daily Hotness.

When the grocery store checker, or the dentist, or our insurance salesman, or the shoe store clerk, or one of my college students who sees her picture in my office asks where she gets her curly hair or if she’s “mixed,” I usually reply, “Yes, she’s biracial,” (for I’ve always thought “mixed” to be used only for dogs and cocktails). I answer this question three or four times a day and often wonder if I should just stick a sign on her that reads “Yes, my father is black.” Keep reading »
Sex sells and we’re all paying the price. Whether you’re a married mom or single and ready to mingle, rendezvous require cold, hard cash, even if you go soft or your date backs off. Kate Carraway, a Canadian blogger for Nerve, decided to go deep and discover the costs associated with satisfying our crotch like lube, internet porn, booze, dates, and gas. She followed a wealth of people, from the $25,000 a year cougar in a long distance relationship, to the hipster computer nerd couple that made $120,000 combined, for a month to track their expenses. So who dropped the most dough?
